Stereo mic at front of stage into Zoom H4. All vocals are deliberately off-mic.
Opening warmup track was too weird to edit out.
Gifts From Enola is a Mylene Sheath artist. Thanks, guys
Gifts From Enola is a band from Harrisonburg, Virginia that juxtapose elements of post-rock with a large hard-rock mindset and then allow an experimental bent to soften the edges. Structurally, some songs explode out of the gates with blistering intensity and then recede slowly back into the sonic landscape with a timid disposition. Other times the band waits for the dynamic breakdown and sets the scene up with calm waves of ambiance and scant field recordings.

Solid live recording
I've made a point of reviewing a group of instrumental (pretty much), guitar driven ensembles, OK read "post rock" if you must, that have not received the attention of some other, very good, bands like Mogwai or Explosions In The Sky. This band is a powerful player in that kind of sonic playground.
I'd suggest the From Fathoms suite for a good idea of what you'll get. I love it, and have since tracked down their studio recordings, and would recommend them as well.
It's a pity there are not more live recordings available, but this is a good one.
